since the other topic has been smashed to oblivion here is a topic about brainstorming troubadour ideas! i think it would be great to do some more troubadours stuff soon but i can't remember any of the ideas in the old thread


ideas i can think of right now:
  • christmas album (covers, originals?)
       
  • just an album of collabs
       
  • remember those guitar pro collaborations a while ago? they were cool and it would be fun to do it again, maybe with just a MIDI file or something
       
  • cover songs in a completely different style to the original recording (has this been done before ??)
       
  • similarly go out of our comfort zone and work with genres we wouldn't normally
can you guys think of anything else / the ideas from the previous thread?

MIDI troubs would be fun, and the file size would be incredibly small.

However, I think all of these are great suggestions (except maybe the christmas album)

I like the "cover songs in a completely different style" one.  Sounds v. rad.

if you're already doing collabs we could just do something else / not have a theme. don't want to burn yourself out!

yeah joking aside that's probably a good idea! some of the more recent troubs stuff has trudged and / or not seen a lot of contribution (woodstock was the really bad one for that) so lets get back to basics and make good music. treat these ideas as helpful pointers if you're stuck

What timeframe are we looking at here? I might be getting a new keyboard for Christmas but if we're planning on having this done before then I'm not going to wait until then.

yeah i was thinking we could get this done by early to mid january so you'd still have time after christmas to do something if you want to wait for your brand spanking new hardware, i figured people might be getting new stuff. of course you're free to do something before then if you get itchy fingers, just gonna leave that option open

Well I think I might start on something now and then if I do get my new keyboard I could either redo bits or do something new.  I don't know if I'll actually get it or not so I'd hate to put the whole thing off until then and it turn out to be for nothing.  It wouldn't hurt to start something now.

I am torn between a few different ideas so I might go ahead and try them all out and see which one starts going the best.
